National Cultural Centre

Description: The National Cultural Centre (NCC) is Saint Lucia’s premier arts and cultural event venue. Conveniently located on Barnard Hill with spectacular views of the Castries Habour, Pointe Seraphine, George FL Charles Airport, Vigie Beach and the Caribbean Sea, the NCC is easily accessed by bus or a five-minute walk from the city of Castries.  The surrounding ambience of the NCC makes it a unique venue; not only does it provide an enclosed indoor event facility but includes a lush green, beautiful garden setting, as well as ample parking space for patrons.

The NCC measures 145.5’ x 68.5’ and seats approximately 700 people with a combination of moveable and non – moveable seating. The stage is approximately 27’ wide x 26’ deep; the most appropriate setting found anywhere in Saint Lucia. Charles Cadet expresses gratitude sm

Purpose: The National Cultural Centre (NCC) is a premiere auditorium for cultural performances, concerts, theatre, dance and musicals.  Its space can also be used for multimedia presentations, seminars, workshops and convocation ceremonies.  The Centre hosts approximately 200 activities annually, attended by a combined audience of about 6,000.

Facilities: Users have access to two dressing rooms with washroom facilities, mirrors and clothes racks; amenities that are not available at other venues in Saint Lucia.

The newly installed four (4) stand-alone air conditioning units provide comfort for patrons, complimented by a central air conditioning unit for large crowd events. In January 2014, the NCC was retrofitted with attractive new cushioned chairs ensuring comfortable seating for patrons.
